Mitä teet

We will meet at Keith's house in Pittman Center, have a quick orientation to the area and birding, and then head out on foot to explore the community of Emerts Cove, a section of Pittman Center, one of the richest bird areas in this part of Sevier County. We might elect to drive a short distance to a local pond and horse pasture which are often very rich in bird life. But for the most part, we'll walk for about 2.5 hours, maybe a bit more, and explore the wooded areas, forest edges, tree and hedgerows and grassy and weedy fields for a variety of bird life. Spring and summer are always better because migrant birds have returned from their wintering grounds to breed in this area and bird song is much richer. But autumn and winter are still great times to explore the bird life in Emerts Cove. During our walk, we can talk about rich history of Emerts Cove and Pittman Center as well as the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

FALL Songbird migration is a great time to look for migrants and winter birds from the NORTH are moving in! Spring and Summer bring early migrants and breeding birds. There is always an abundant richness of bird life in the area!
After we have explored the area for about 2.5 - 3 hours, we'll return to Keith's home and depart.
Other things to note
We will walk rain or shine, cold or warm, unless it's pouring and we'll try to reschedule. Wear appropriate weather and climate gear. A hat always helps with sun and any insects, bring sunscreen.

Ruth and Keith were extremely hospitable and kind. Keith provided our family with an exceptional journey around his property that they have curated for optimum bird diversity. Additionally, we took a short drive to a local meadow and observed even more species. To top it all, Keith was engaging with all members of my family including kids aged 7, 16, and 18 along with the adults. Keith has expert knowledge of birds and their habitats, and answered questions about local floral and fauna. We truly enjoyed our three hours of bird watching. Highly recommend.

Keith and Ruth are amazing! The binoculars we used were incredible. We were so impressed with Keith's knowledge of the birds and the area. Keith even shares some of his favorite birding apps and books. While nature decided to limit the number of birds, we were thrilled with what we did get to see and thoroughly enjoyed the area and company.

Wow! What a one-of-kind experience! My children, aged 9 and 13, and I participated in this experience. Ruth and Keith were both very welcoming. This is a peaceful (but exciting) easy-paced tour with just a small amount of walking around the hosts’ beautiful property and neighborhood, where we saw many birds. We did drive, following Keith, a short distance to another area and had excellent luck spotting additional birds. Keith is very knowledgeable and he has a great eye for identifying these birds in the trees and in flight. He was very kind and informative and tailored the tour to us, being very helpful in explaining information to absolute beginners. The binoculars they lent us for the tour were great! I am just smiling as I write this review and remember our experience. Perfect activity for vacation and relaxation! New hobby?! I think so!

A great experience for us novices. I am sure this would also speak to educated birders. The area is beautiful and Keith is a wonderful, gentle, knowledgeable host.

Keith and Ruth were terrific! Helped get us ready for our birding experience, provided binoculars and a cool strap/harness that is way way better than hanging them around your neck... a quick binocular lesson for the less experienced birders and off we went. There were tons of new birds for me right in the front and back yards, short walks down the road revealed even more! Keith was excellent at identifying bird calls, and then with an expert eye, could locate that bird, too! I wish I could have taken him with us on our other outings! Keith was available even after the trip, providing a list of recommended apps, books etc, that enhanced our birding experience.

Lovely bird walk in a nice woodsy area with a very knowledgeable, kind, mellow guide! What’s not to love. Easy to find, easy to participate, well worth the effort.
